Review:
A very American book but with an up to date overview of cost of living in different places (and if there is one country where cost of living can differ from place to place it is the US). A book like this has a very short life after printing, so make sure you get the latest version. If you want to move to/within the US this is one of the best sources of information on localities and can save you a lot of research.

Review:
Who hasn't fantasized about ditching work and pulling a Thelma and Louise? Well, don't even think about taking a road trip without a copy of Cameron Tuttle's Bad Girl's Guide to the Open Road. Tuttle, who's crisscrossed the country several times, has written a hilarious, in-your-face, travelogue/self-help book (glove-compartment-size with a nifty hot-pink cover) that's sure to get adventure-seeking gals everywhere in their cars. The Bad Girl's Guide is jam-packed with practical and not-so-practical information on where to go (the Elvis Is Alive Museum, Lizzie Borden's House), which Road Sisters to bring along (preferably ones with trust funds), es...

Review:
Frances Mayes continues her love letter to Italy in this sequel to Under the Tuscan Sun and Bella Tuscany. The restoration of her home, Bramasole, is complete, but Tuscany keeps unfolding. While the earlier books chronicled her and her husband's first years in Italy, this one is less full of stories than meditations on the elements of Tuscan pleasures, accompanied by photographs that give color to the place Mayes has described so lovingly and well. "What makes the people so friendly, no, not just friendly, so genuinely kind and generous?" Mayes asks an Italian friend, then turns her intense attention to answer the question herself. Her answers range... Rest of this review on the detail page

Review:
If you are looking for a precise technical description of building a recumberent bike with built-in computers, this is not the right book to read. If you want to read about what it's like, what happens during such a bike trip across the US, what kind of organizing is involved, what kind of people you meet and how you are influenced, this is a great book. A man who tries a recumberent bike once and gets addicted and follows up with a trip across the US on bike, writing about it on the way, camping out, meeting people, dealing with the weather and everything. Great book! I have read it and I have read it again. Recommended!
